Miguel delivers a seminar on the dangers posed by our own cellular nucleases (enzymes that can cut DNA) and how cells must control them, at the National Museum of Science and Technology (MUNCYT) in A Coruña. Thanks to María Mayán (INIBIC), Julio Casal (CORBI Foundation) and Ana Correas (MUNCYT) for their kind invitation and warm welcome.
Tomás and Miguel participate in the Meeting of the “Chromodyst” National Research Network, held in Alcalá de Henares, where we presented some of our latest unpublished results. A fantastic opportunity to catch up with the work of some of the best national groups working on all aspects of chromosome dynamics. Great talks and discussions, new collaborations and a unique chance to (re-)discover Alcalá de Henares, a beautiful city full of culture, science and heritage. Highly recommended! Our thanks to Félix Prado (CABIMER) as the coordinator of Chromodyst and to José A. Tercero for his moonlighting as a knowledgeable local guide.
The lab welcomes Lucía Pasarín López, who is joining us to pursue her BSc thesis on the characterization of a novel non-catalytic version of Yen1.
Raquel and Tomás from our lab presented the latest results from our lab at the 42nd Congress of the Spanish Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM) held in Madrid from 16th to 19th, July 2019.
